DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1764 years, Italy. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
This artwork depicts a somber funeral scene in which a bishop is the central figure. Bartolozzi was renowned for his expertise in portraying delicate emotions and intricate details, and this painting is a testament to his skills. In the composition, the bishop is depicted in his ecclesiastical regalia, adorned with richly embroidered vestments and a mitre. His presence exudes a sense of solemnity and reverence. It is evident that the occasion is a momentous one, as mourners surround the bishop, grieving the loss of a significant person. Bartolozzi's mastery of capturing human emotions is evident in the expressions of the mourners. Their faces reflect the sorrow and melancholy associated with funerals, while their gestures and body language indicate their respect and admiration for the bishop. The artist pays meticulous attention to detail, from the folds of the bishop's robes to the subtle shadows that enhance the depth and dimension of the scene.
Francesco Bartolozzi is an Italian draftsman, watercolor painter and engraver, the greatest master of etching, dotted style, in particular colored dotted line and pencil etching style. From 1764 he worked in
 England, where he created a school of color reproduction engravings.
Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591 – 1666) better known as Guercino, was an Italian Baroque painter and draftsman from Cento in the Emilia region, who was active in Rome and Bologna. The vigorous naturalism of his early manner contrasts with the classical equilibrium of his later works. His many drawings are noted for their luminosity and lively style.
